Buggy is a buggy racing game, developed and publshed by Gremlin Interactive Ltd. in 1998. It consists of 2 releases, one on the Playstation 1, and one on the PC, released simultaneously.
Features and gameplay
The game features a story mode, where you race your way through several "hubs", each consisting of 2-5 maps. After completing all maps, you unlock the next hub. Completing a hub grants you a new buggy racer.
This game isn't just the typical racing game, because inside the maps, you can drive through so called "ports". These ports come in all kinds of shapes, from orange, to green and red. You can stack up several ports, until you ultimately form a combo, granting you everything from speed, jumping to invisibility. Some combos are required to pass through special walls, where inside you can enter a secret level, giving you the opportunity to unlock secret, special buggy racers.
In the picture to the right, you can see a red port in the top middle of the picture, and a forecoming combo in the bottum left.
The game also has 10+ unlockable buggy racers. The buggy selection screen can be seen below:
As you can see, all the buggy's have 4 different stats; speed, acceleration, grip and weight. All these stats factor in the usefulness of the buggy, where as speed is good for prolonged fast races, acceleration is good for short races, grip is good for races with a lot of corners, and weight is good for bumping into other buggys.
